CWU On Stage - KYVE

Monday, Nov 4, 2013
7:00 pm


Don't miss the CWU Symphony Orchestra's performance at 7 PM Monday on KYVE-47 public television's "CWU on Stage." 

The program features Symphony No. 1 in C minor, Op. 68 Johannes Brahms, conducted by CWU Director of Orchestras,  Nikolas Caoile.

Graduate student Dean Snavely will conduct "Be Thou My Vision, by  David Gillingham, who described the work this way:

The work opens with a medieval-like flavor of reverence leading to the first presentation of "Slane" ("Be Thou My Vision") in D-minor stated in chant-like somberness by the euphonium.  Following, the newly composed Irish ballad is sung by the flute which leads to a dramatic statement of "Be Thou My Vision" by the full ensemble in A-major.  The work is interrupted by a prayerful interlude. Following is the marriage of the two Irish tunes in Db-major which grows to a glorious climax and then subsides.  A heavenly benediction closes the work.

CWU on Stage is a partnership between CWU and KYVE-47/KCTS-9. Enjoy previous performances online at http://kcts9.org/cwu-on-stage.
